Family Matinee: Peter and the Wolf
Feb 19, 2022
Peter and the Wolf


Step into the big green meadow with Peter, the young hero of Prokofiev’s musical tale. This children’s favorite tells the story of a boy who risks his own safety to protect his dear friends: a duck and a bird. This program, which features the amazing Magic Circle Mime Company, proves that you don’t need to be grown up to discover courage inside yourself!
